You might think it would be an honour to work with songwriter and record producer extraordinaire Sam Hollander. But you’d be wrong. Set your sights higher people. It would quite clearly be beyond an honour. In fact, it would be so far beyond an honour, you’d need a telescope to still be able to see the honour. Even then, it would a tiny dot on the horizon.

“Sam has been one of my favourite songwriters and a dear friend for a very long time”, says Sony/ATV’s SVP A&R Rich Christina. “It’s beyond an honour to finally get to work directly with him and have him join the Sony/ATV family”.

Too right it is. Hollander, by the way, is joining the Sony/ATV family. Like what Rich just said. Though by that I mean he’s signed a worldwide deal with the Sony music publisher. No adoption papers will be filed. A lengthy copyright contract has been signed.

But how does Hollander himself feel about all this? Need you ask? We all know how Hollander feels about all this. “I’m so THRILLED to begin this chapter of my career, joining the almighty Sony/ATV”, he says. Yeah, of course!

Now all that gubbins is done, Hollander can get back to the business of writing and producing fine music. His CV so far includes collaborations with Panic! At The Disco, One Direction, Katy Perry, Train, Blink 182, Weezer and Carole King, among others.
